Friedensreich Hundertwasser came to New Zealand in 1976 in the search for his own paradise and to live in harmony with nature.
He found it in and around the small community of Northland Kawakawa.
And it is here where he gifted his most humble and magic architecture to the people of New Zealand, the Kawakawa public toilets.
When he suddenly passed away in the year 2000, the Kawakawa public toilets were to become his last completed architectureal enterprise.
The creation of the Hundertwasser Park Kawakawa, adjoining to the Hundertwasser public toilets will give the nation of New Zealand the opportunity to honour Frederik Hundertwasser as a “Living Treasure”.
